Inside Gabriela Hearst’s West Village Town House

Inside Gabriela Hearst’s West Village Town House

She’s continually inspired by its former resident, James Baldwin.

There aren’t many times we walk into a home and are absolutely floored by it. But then again, there aren’t too many homes that housed James Baldwin during what have been called “his most prolific and creative periods” and are now inhabited by nominees for CFDA’s Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent.

Such is the case for Gabriela Hearst’s West Village town house—James Baldwin was actually one of the influences for her fall 2017 collection. Every inch of it (as in the two dining and sitting rooms, and the all-marble-everything bathroom with a view) reflects the designer’s sophisticated but comfortable aesthetic, and despite being incredibly fancy, it’s also unbelievably comfortable.

“The glamourous people are my husband's family and the gauchos are mine—it’s easy to see the difference. I think pictures are very inspiring; the clothes, the time period. It's also nice for the children to see them on the walls. Honoring your ancestors is always a good idea. We wouldn't be here without them.”
